Ambassador Simmons: Our task is to help those who want judicial reform in Ukraine.

The United Kingdom is ready in any situation to help those people in Ukraine who are interested in the successful implementation of judicial reform.

British Ambassador to Ukraine Melinda Simmons said this on Savik Shuster's Freedom of Speech program, according to an Ukrinform correspondent.

According to the diplomat, if Ukraine fails to implement judicial reform, this will stop investment. However, she said that even in the event of a failure to restart the judiciary, Britain will continue to support Ukraine.

Simmons said she agreed with Charge d'Affaires at the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv Kristina Kvien that this would also be a bigger problem for Ukraine's Euro-Atlantic aspirations.

She added that together with her colleague ambassadors, Kvien and Head of the EU Delegation to Ukraine Matti Maasikas, she took the opportunity to publish an article stating that now is the moment to reform Ukraine's judicial system as such moments are rare in any country.

Simmons said that in this scenario there are those who are interested in the success of this process and "our task is to help them achieve this."

Kvien, Simmons and Maasikas on October 20 published an article entitled "Now Is the Moment to Transform Ukraine" for the Ukrayinska Pravda news site, in which they officially reminded President Volodymyr Zelensky of the need to fight corruption in the courts and reform the judicial system.
